Here are some life lessons from her winning ways:  knew right away that being just a teacher was the wrong choice. She missed the sport she'd grown up playing and needed to find a way to combine basketball with her career. After going back for a second degree, Andrews was able to teach and coach on the high sohool level. Forty-nine years later, she still hasn't thought about giving up her beloved basketball. . Andrews originally got her degree in elementary education, but
 Hardship will make you stronger. Over the course of her career, Andrews has met with more than a few male coaches who have neglected both her success and women's sports in general. She lets their “looking down” roll right off her like drops of sweat on a player's back. Instead, such slights make her work even harder to ensure her players believe they deserve as much success as any man, on and off the court.  There’s no I in team. On bus rides to games, Andrews takes away her players' cell phones. Texting, she says, does harm to teambuilding. You can't win without a unified team that knows how to communicate with each other. Socializing is an important factor to success, and when we focus on ourselves (or our electronics) rather than others, we miss valuable connections and experiences.  Winning is everything. It just depends on how you understand “winning”. For Andrews, victory on the court is the logical result of lots and lots of hard work and preparation. She believes in tough love to get her players focused on playing their absolute best, individually and as a team. While a winning game is the immediate goal, she hopes all of her players will carry the team spirit with them long after graduation. 76. What's the passage mainly about? (no more than l0 words)
77. Which sentence in the passage is closest in meaning to the following one? Only when a team is aware of communication and unity can it win.

阅读下面短文并回答问题， 然后将答案写到试卷规定的位置上 （请注意问题后的字数要求） 。  Everyone wants something in life, love, money, success...Yet too many people fail to achieve their goals, and nearly all of them are for the same reason.  It’s true that terrible things do happen to people during their lives, though no fault of their own, which may make them feel upset. Generally speaking, however, getting what you really want out of life is just a matter of the following three simple steps.  Firstly, you have to decide what it is you want the most. But do not make a list of wishes; try to focus on one thing at a time. If you’re not sure about where you want to go, you’d better think it over first and not hurry to perform.  Secondly, _______________. This will be your map for getting from “where you are now ” to “where you want to go”. You know what you want, and what steps you are going to take to get it. For example, if you want a better job, start with a skills assessment and maybe some extra training. Then you’ll need to sell yourself and your skills either to your present employer or to a new one.  Other goals will require a bit more thought. Some will really get you lost without a clue of how to get there. Not to worry, though, books, biographies and such, can be of great help.  The third and final step is to carry it out. Do what you planned. Take the steps you outlined on your road map and keep going on all the time. If you run into some people who are against you, simply ignore them.
 Never give up the goal. Keep pushing. Whatever you do, do not lose heart before you have what you desire in your hands. Never think that you can’t turn your dream into a reality.
